    This weekend I have mainly been driving too and from Birmingham..............but apart from that,the caliper was changed on Bons,then I decided not to cut the grass,pile lots of cars bits up in a old baby seat,so we could look like Steptoe & son,this now includes a electric window motor as Bon's was kapoot and just made the sound of clicking,I then for some reason after washing S15,decided to fix/replace the broken phono wire in the back of the under seat subwoofer that came with S15 (why it was in the boot I don't know) ,as half of it was still stuck in said Subwoofer a epic battle commenced,before I wired it wrong and started another epic battle with crimps,cutty things and swearing,then hooray it now goes boom boom boom and is for sale later this year,because I don't actually want it,but I have plans for the boot so epic if you find out I will have to kill you :) now where's my Bourbon :drunk: 30856987_10216355501382921_4423085728302806093_o.jpg 29983318_10216355481782431_981055421879006648_o.jpg

    Well back to Bon's today as the brakes still were not quite right after the caliper change,I drove it to the post office on Thursday and noticed a rubbing noise when braking,so off with the wheel and caliper again,a spin of the disc and probably the overheating as the disc was warped,so new discs and pads needed,meantime a bit more time for cleaning S15 today as it's meet day tommo :)

    That's the one I've got, Roverlike! It's very small but the one I got was pretty much immaculate, and under two quid. Bargain!

    took 655 to work this morning, a MG TF owner wondered if he could get BRM seats into his car!. as some of you know the 211 has been passed onto the boy so, there's an R3 space that needs filling........ I've bought something from a forum member, going to pick up tomorrow...watch this space...............

    I had a great day,decided to mow the front lawn,so moved 73,left it idling and after ten mins the top hose bust and it went up in a ball of steam,next I moved SDV1 and the fan belt started screeching,thought it will stop in a min but smoke and a burning smell before the fan belt melted and snapped as it looks like the alternator has seized :( :slap:

    Had this on my old 400 diesel after it had been stood for several weeks. May be worth faffing about with wd40 and a big allen key to free it before resorting to a replacement. Worked for me, but that was a bigger alternator with an oil feed iirc.

    So, further to last nights comment R.E another vehicle, me and my mate headed off to sunny Bedfordshire today and picked up a 2001 Rover 25 Gti from forum member Gatring, the bodywork is really good but Gat has nicked the engine for his BRM....luckily I have a vvc engine and box out of a MGF that I broke so project green begins, bodywork is minimal, just the rear hatch has lacquer peel, it’s an aircon car as well, 80k on the clock the engine I have is 84k, the gti’s are really rare with just 79 left on the road, I tried up loading pics but the file is too large
